2.    Let A be a subset of I = [0, 1] which is not Lebesgue-measurable, and let / be the
function which is equal to 1 on A and to — 1 on I — A. Then f2 is integrable but /
is not measurable.

3.    Consider the sequence (An) denned in Problem 4(b) of Section 13.8, and let H be the
union of the sets A2n+i (n > 0). Show that, if J is any nonempty open interval con-
tained in I, then the sets J n H and J n (I — H) both have strictly positive measure.
Now let / be a function equal to 9?H almost everywhere. Show that there does not
exist any sequence (/„) of continuous functions on I which converges at every point of
I to the function/. (Remark that /must be discontinuous at every point of I, and use
Problem 3 of Section 12.16.)

4.    Let ju, be a bounded measure of total mass 1 on a locally compact space X. Let
(A/Oiscfc^n be a finite sequence of integrable subsets of X, such that /z(Ak) — c> 0
for all k. If nc> 1 and e > c(l — c)/(n — 1), show that there exist two distinct indices
ij such that ft(Aj n Aj) ^ c2 — e. (Argue by contradiction, using the Cauchy-
Schwarz inequality.)

5.   Let (/„) be a sequence of functions belonging to ^a(X, JJL) (p = 1 or 2) which converges
almost everywhere to a function /.

(a)    Show that, if Np(/w) <; a for all n, then /e tf&Qi, ju) and Np(/) ^ a. (Use
Fatou's lemma.) Give an example (withp = 1) where Np(/n) does not tend to Np(/).

(b)    Now  suppose in  addition   that   Np(/n) -> Np(/)   as  w-> + oo.   Show  that
Np(/— /„) ->• 0. (Show that for each e > 0 there exists a compact subset K of X and an

integer n0 such that         \fn \ p dp, ^ e for all n ^ Ğ0 .)

6.   In the space ^R(!,A), where I = ]0, 1] and A is Lebesgue measure, consider the
functions /* (a real), which belong to this space provided that a > — £.

Show that a sequence of distinct exponents an > — i is such that the functions
fn form a total sequence in J2PR(I, A) if and only if the sequence (an) satisfies one of the
following three conditions:

(1)   there exists a subsequence of the sequence (an) tending to a finite limit > — i;

(2)    lim an = — - and


(3)    lim an = + oo ;



(Using Weierstrass' theorem (7.4.1 ), calculate for each integer m > 0 the minimum of
N2(^ — /(/)) as /runs through the set of all linear combinations of the first n functions
t"k. For this purpose, use Problem 3(b) of Section 6.6, and the formula (Cauchy's
